What is Pupil Premium funding?
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils to close the gap between them and their peers. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to support the raising of attainment of the most vulnerable pupils.
Who receives the Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils from low income families who are registered for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been registered for FSM in the last six years. Grants are based on those pupils included in the school’s January census.
